    I also like "New Sunshine Morning".
    The CRY album effectively combines the old sound with the new sound (I find their late 80s/early 90s sound a bit jarring)

    Maybe I should buy that album:)

    Each year we nominate Christmas songs and we test ourselves by finding more Christmas songs that haven’t been mentioned, or that received little notice during our nominations.

    This week I want to look at your ten favourite Christmas. Songs that truly define Christmas for you, whether that’s during your childhood, or your later life, what songs are up there?

    Weeeell, I wouldn't say that those Dutch songs are my favourites:lol:, but it's sort of a "definitive/ultimate" childhood Xmas memory.

    3. In the Bleak Midwinter
    4. I Believe in Father Christmas - Greg Lake

    I meant defining, not favorites. My favorites list would look a bit different. Not much though, I suspect.
    But as I said, I skipped the Swedish songs for Ome's tallying up sake. Christmas kindness.

    Elvis Costello

    1.jpg

    Declan Patrick MacManus (born 25 August 1954), better known by his stage name Elvis Costello, is an English musician, singer-songwriter, and record producer. He began his career as part of London's pub rock scene in the early 1970s and later became associated with the first wave of the British punk and new wave movement that emerged in the mid-to-late 1970s.
    [​IMG]
    He has won multiple awards in his career, including a Grammy Award, and has twice been nominated for the Brit Award for Best British Male Singer. In 2003, Costello and the Attractions were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked Costello number 80 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.
    [​IMG]
    Major artists who have been influenced by Costello include Billy Bragg, the Pogues, Radiohead, Dexys Midnight Runners, Pulp, Crowded House, James, Suzanne Vega, and Foo Fighters.

    [​IMG]

    Costello has worked with Paul McCartney, Tony Bennett, Burt Bacharach, Allen Toussaint, T Bone Burnett, Lucinda Williams, Kid Rock, Lee Konitz, Brian Eno, and Rubén Blades.

    1. Waiting For The End Of The World
    2. Good Year For The Roses
    3. This Is Hell
    4. Jimmie Standing In The Rain
    5. Oliver's Army
    6. The Other Side Of Summer
    7. Hand In Hand
    8. God's Comic
    9. Radio, Radio
    10. Sleep Of The Just

    This was very interesting because I didn't know any of his songs apart from the ones nominated in the other top tens.
    He's a famous singer and I think he was always in the Top 40, but maybe he doesn't have a signature song? What was his biggest hit in the UK?

    'Watching the Detectives', probably.

    'Oliver's Army' was BIG.

    I'm very partial to these two as well:
